    Thanks to everyone for this conversation. There's a lot to think about in all of your comments.

    I do think I might be more interested in management-type responsibilities if I was building my own business. Like at least it would be something of my own.

    I've always worried that working as a consultant or freelance (vs being in-house) wouldn't allow me to invest in the product. But maybe that's wrong of me to think.

    I had a conversation with my manager about this. He's been encouraging and wants to make sure that I feel like I have a path to grow. I might have to figure out how to define my role for myself. I don't think there's really been a senior role that didn't evolve into a management role in our company before.

    Mostly, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been thinking about this. I was starting to think I was a little crazy. :) Glad to have support here!
